    PLEASE NOTE: The Category 1 and Category 2 CEU applications have been updated as of April 9, 2015. Any Category 1 application received after June 1, 2015 must be in the new application format to comply with standards set by the American Board of Genetic Counseling.

    Important Information Regarding CEU Tracking

    PLEASE NOTE: All individuals receiving CEUs are responsible for saving and maintaining their personal CEU records, including original issued certificates.  NSGC does not keep individual CEU files for genetic counselors; we do have records for approved activities that were sent to us by the conference organizers that are maintained for a total of 5 years.  We do our best to assist with requests of re-issuing certificates; we cannot guarantee that we will always have sufficient documentation to re-issue a certificate. 

    As a best practice, we recommend individuals use their personal (not work) emails to save their CEU certificates, as well as print physical copies of all email confirmations in case email records are unable to be retrieved. Then, CEUs should be entered into the ABGC CEU tracker, which can be found by logging into ABGC’s website and selecting “Recertify” in the upper right-hand corner of the screen, then selecting “My CEUs/PACs Summary” page.
